Paper Abstract

The telescope structure including control system and the complete retractable dome of the new 1.5 m solar telescope GREGOR were assembled during 2004 at Izana on Tenerife, Spain. The GREGOR telescope is build by a consortium of the Kiepenheuer Institut fuer Sonnenphysik, the Astrophysikalische Institut Potsdam, the Institut fuer Astrophysik Goettingen and additional national and international Partners. Pointing, tracking and thermal tests were made to verify the proposed performance. The results of these tests and a progress report of the project will be presented.
